🎖️ ~ Marine Leaders Highlight Norway Unit's Role as Deterrent to Russia ( Archive 2017) ~ | Blogger: [✊We all heard about Norwegian base has become US Marines' Hub in Europe and U.S. stationing tanks and artillery in classified Norwegian caves (Værnes Air Station)👊] ... In addition to proximity to the cold-weather battle training that Commandant Gen. Robert Neller has said he wants to emphasize, 'Vaernes offers the Marine Corps next-door access to a series of caves, maintained by the Norwegian military, that stock enough gear, vehicles and ammunition to equip a force of more than 4,600 troops. Managers of the system, called Marine Corps Prepositioning Program-Norway, said use of the gear for training and exercises on the continent had grown "exponentially" in the last 24 months'... ⚠️PS: Norway also bought for 200 billion worth of F-35's.. During the Cold War, Norway built a secret naval base, Olavsvern, that was carved into the mountain just outside the city of Tromsø, in the Arctic Circle. The base—comprised of a submarine hangar made of rock, direct sea access, nearly 150,000 sq ft of buildings and almost double that in bombproof interior space—took 30 years and cost NATO around $500 million to build to fight the threat of the Soviet Union... 🤔❓Why do you think Stoltenberg has succeed secretary-general Anders Fogh Rasmussen? Both countries (Denmark, Norway) has VERY strong relation ties to US military. Denmark - 20 years of serving under NATO and US as warring nation, danish forces has always been in wars with other countries, that has never, ever provoked Denmark. Denmark has secret pact with Greenland and US, Terma A/S (Lockheed Martin) and many other defense contractors. The Norwegian business sector has strong ties with the US. Norway has unimaginable many secrets within the military. Caves, underground bunkers, HAARP installation in Tromsø, secret naval base in Olavsvern, EISCAT in Kiruna, Svalbard - a demilitarized zone and The Svalbard Global Seed Vault. Both countries has many unknown Cold war sites, still secret... |

VAERNES GARRISON, Norway -- The stated goals of the Marine Corps' newest rotational force in Norway are to enhance partnerships with European allies and improve the service's ability to fight in cold weather.

But on a brief visit to the 300-member unit ahead of Christmas, the commandant and the sergeant major of the Marine Corps both described the strategic role the small unit fills -- and the fact that a peacetime mission can be preface to combat if circumstances change.

The Norwegian Home Guard base near Trondheim that houses the Marine rotational force was the first stop on Gen. Robert Neller's annual Christmas tour.

The stop was a new one for the tour. The first Norway rotation, from 1st Battalion, 2nd Marines, deployed in January and was replaced by a new unit from 2nd Battalion, 2nd Marines, in late August.

Neller emphasized to the Marines that they should remain ready to fight at all times, predicting a "big-ass fight" on the horizon.

"I hope I'm wrong, but there's a war coming," Neller said. " ... You're in a fight here, an informational fight, a political fight, by your presence."
